Visit Dunmore Head

A lost point facing the Atlantic Ocean

Dunmore Head has the advantage of being close to the village of Dunquin, on the Dingle Peninsula, which borders some of the most beautiful scenery in the area (with the Ring of Kerry).

Easily accessible by car, Dunmore Head is appreciated above all for its wilderness, but also for its ogham stone, located on a hill overlooking the sea.

This stone has the peculiarity of having oghamic engravings. It is an ancient pagan writing that can still be found on some Irish archaeological sites.

This stone is one of the most beautiful specimens still intact in the country!

Access to Dunmore Head is free, and well worth a short break or even a hike!

Don’t forget your camera and go there in good weather: the view is simply breathtaking, and will give you a clear view of the Blasket Islands which are located several kilometres off the Dingle Peninsula!

Whatever happens, remember to leave well equipped, with a backpack and good shoes!
